Kicker Matt Bryant
Yes, the former Buccaneers kicker makes this list. Matt Bryant was a key contributor to the Jon Gruden lead teams later in his tenure. Most notably in 2006, he kicked a 62-yard field goal against the Eagles in a 4-12 season.
The Buccaneers decided to release Matt Bryant in 2009 after finishing 98/118 good enough for 83%. Since the Buccaneers released Bryant they’ve had seven kickers, while the Atlanta Falcons have had one, Matt Bryant. While he is up there in age, 42, he has been the model of consistency for the Falcons while the Bucs have gone through a revolving door on special teams.
Matt Bryant, while only on the field for a few plays, can rack up points. Sitting at nineteenth, 1587, in NFL career scoring leaders he can move into eighteenth over Eddie Murray with seven points on Monday. He still has a ways to go to catch up with Morten Anderson and Adam Vinatieri who have almost 1000 more points. The Falcons can get points whenever they cross the 35-yard line because Bryant is 5/7 from beyond 50 yards this season. The sixteen-year vet may not have a lot of years left in the league but he has plenty of leg left. The Bucs really could’ve used Bryant last year to sneak into the playoffs.
